I glazed blues, and yellows into the background. It's a little too light at this stage, I'd like to tone it down a bit and make it more interesting, but I'm not sure how.

Mystery Portrait-Color Stage 7
I glazed another mixture of raw sienna, raw umber, burnt umber, and titanium white over the entire face. I then applied yellow ochre onto forehead, vermilion red onto face and ultramarine blue onto neck. This is the old master's trick called color banding. I blended these colors well. I then added Naples Yellow Deep into highlights, blended and then I broke out the Naples Yellow Light and blended into highlights.
